Re0 watchdog timeout [solved]



  • :'(
    Hi,

    Anyone ecounter watchdog timeout Issue?
    When I download Files (28g) from server behind re0, the server beening unreachable after amount of time :(
    I can still ping re0 interface but cannot ping devices behind re0.

    my pfsense config:
    pfsense 2.2.4
    Asus J1900i-c
    4GB Ram
    Onboard realtek 8111g –---- re0
    Intel dual port 82576 lan ---------- wan, lan

    Appreciate for advise.
    The syslog is full of watchdog timeout, re0 down, re0 up, loop

  • maybe you are right about that lol.
    I just found some forum said that….it just a old issue from FreeBSD 8.X and now still exist on 9.X



  • It seem solved after enabling Flow Control and Master on my re0 interface.

    also need to add parameters in /boot/loader.conf
    hw.re.msi_disable=1
    hw.pci.enable_msix=0
    hw.pci.enable_msi=0

    I am not network expert, I dont know what these parameters but these two steps save my life. :D

    PS. This steps also solved my old old old issue: network performance 50% of gigabit speed

    Hi,
    I'm also having the same problem I got frequent re0 (LAN) watchdog timeout issue, with the powerd off no such problem.

    So, may I ask you how to enable the flowcontrol and master?

    Thanks!

    Interface -> "your realtek interface" -> Advanced




  • I'm having these issues, I have no "Native" interfaces though, they are all VLANs, any way to set this on the base interface?



  • You could do it with the shellcmd package.



  • Hi apologise for resurrecting an old thread but how do you add the parameters to the boot\loader?

    Thanks

  • The above did not solve my problem alone rather a combination.

    What fixed it for me was uploading a compiled version of realtek driver 1.92 if_re.ko to /boot/kernel/ and in /boot/loeader.conf.local add the following line: if_re_load="YES" then reboot and wupti.

    I also however tick the 3 Disable hardware offloadings in System - Advanced - Networking

    Heres some links that helped me solve my issue including the compiled if_re.ko, i hope it helps others having same problem.

    How did you upload that compiled file to the /boot/kernel? I'm ready to do this and can't figure it out (I'm new to this – obviously).

    Thanks!
